GALLERY: Every arrival at the Xavier Catholic College formal

THE senior students of Xavier Catholic College were able to dance the night away as COVID-19 restrictions eased further on Friday.

Principal Simon Dash was on hand to see the students arrive and said it was perfect timing for the night ahead, with many looking forward to taking part in the tradition.

It is the fifth formal that has been held so far on the Fraser Coast this year, but the first time dancing has been allowed as the state manages the pandemic.
